E-M:/ South Fox Island

Enviro-Mich message from "Upton, Brian" <BUPTON@mail.gtbindians.com>

This week's Leelanau Enterprise has an interesting article on all the
federal and state government officials that have been convened on South Fox
Island to review the seawall being constructed and the piers that have been
proposed for construction.  The seawall is supposed to protect a house that
was just built last summer near the water.  According to the July 24, 2002
issue of the North Woods Call, DEQ staff had recommended denying approval
for construction of that house but they were apparently overridden by DEQ
director Russ Harding.  As the Leelanau Enterprise and the North Woods Call
have both reported, the Army Corps of Engineer recently suggested that the
house be moved due to its having been constructed on an unstable site.
